Do any of you have this illness? You have a bass you love love love - your "go to" ole reliable, never dissatisfied with it bass machine. In my case it's my 2008 American Standard P (shown in my avatar above). But you keep buying other basses thinking your gonna get a nice back up that could possibly, maybe take over as your number one. You get that new bass (in my case a second hand 2012 American Standard Jazz in near new condition) and love it, praise it and even post a thread on TB about how great it is. You gig with it, putting your ole reliable on the stand in front of your amp as "backup" and you start thinking, "yeah, this new one is the $h!t." it's the end of the line for number one. Move over favorite bass, there's a new kid in town. Then, say, third set, you decide to pickup your old friend and play it and fall instantly back in love? You still are quite fond of the new one, but suddenly it's become trade bait, you may be able to live without it if the right "next bass" comes along. Obviously, that's where I am. I discovered the Cult of P-bass when I got my 2008 in 2009. It was the first P-bass I really liked and it soon became my favorite feeling, sounding, looking, etc bass. Before that I only played Jazzes. I've owned 5 Jazzes in my life and always believed I should have one, or that I really liked them. I might not. But I'm not sure if it's that (a) I'm a P-bass guy or (b) I'm MY P-bass guy. I have a Tony Franklin fretless that's gotten some gig love. I've got a Ric 4003 that is awesome - never trade bait, but gets about 1 every 10 gigs. And the new Jazz is amazing. Better in some respects than the Custom Shop Jazz I tired of and sold. I am now torn: do I sell this Jazz, do something fun with the cash? Do I sell the Jazz and/ or trade for another premium P-bass? Do I keep the Jazz for the semi-annual I need a Jazz Bass fix?
